Okay here is my list of done items
Boxed up photographs of my children, myself and our adventures
Jewelry in safe deposit box
Tossed safely all extra and old medicines
Guns in safe deposit box (perhaps not politically correct but this girl yes)
Wine cellar emptied
Painted everything excepting daughter's room which I think I'm going to have someone do it-
not enough time for getting her giant mural down and the Ives Klein Blue is going to be a triple coat
Garage sales cleaned out about half of the treasures in the garage, need to sell the rest on ebay
(Anyone need extra surf boards, weight equipment, a treadmill, artwork, mister system and a huge variety of women's designer clothing I purchased in the flush years before the crash that daughter never wore- let me know)
Every thing from window screens, under sinks, tubs, and windows is super clean.
Threw away some area rugs, donated others
Pool is clean fountain running but the dang trees will surely drop stuff all day for me
Cut down the pigmy palm that blocked south side ocean view (yes I used a chain saw)
cleaned glass wall to sparkle up the ocean and canyons views.
Trimmed down all my sweet peas and harvested seeds ( a little early but they were leggy and messy looking)
Power washed brick and driveway
Steaming rosemary, lemon peels and vanilla for air perker freshener smell "betterer" (it's better than fabreze or candles or cookies)
Dog bowls in laundry room, Honey had a bath but she will go to grandma's for the afternoon. Honey is almost 14 out Golden Retriever who is deaf and sunbathes but would greet everyone with fluffy hair.
all laundry washed dried and put away
Kitchen sink looks super white brand new
Did I say I dusted, scrubbed and cleaned again last night?
What did I miss?
Took down the rosary and cross above my dresser.
Hope the kids don't come home and start cooking a nice curry dish at 2:00.
How do I lure buyers to stay out backyard and me romanced by the view, the hummingbirds, the Bells Vireo who is nesting in the gazebo?

In review the new CFBP TILA - RESPA Integrated Disclosures
TRID adds a "lemon law" like disclosure at closing more strict than what was in place for refinance owner occupied mortgages. Now the forms TIL and Good Faith are simplified but No room for escrow or attorney nationwide to make estimate errors. All costs have to be right on the money.
This means Realtors can no longer add credits, rebates, seller credits for repairs or termite or softening credits to make buyers close on the last days. This would add additional wait days, require appraisers to review the value and buyers to wait. Rate locks may need to be extended accordingly.
New law that is pretty easy to follow but perhaps not so great for consumers. Added wait times is now what buyers borrowers and real estate agents want.
Here at Eagle and Universal Home Mortgage we are already working to implement these changes.
Educating Realtors to make money credit agreements upfront or to avoid last minute changes that will add days to a transaction.
It takes away my ability to offer cheaper 15 day rate locks as there may not be time to close and re-disclose if any numbers change, and they often do.
I can still close a loan in 30 days, or less.
